Citizens' Police Academy

The Atherton Police Department is accepting applications for its citizens' police academy to be held on Saturday, May 18. 

The Citizens' Police Academy is a one-day citizen engagement program that is designed to provide Atherton residents with first-hand information about how their Police Department works. Training will be in an “academy setting” with a few hands-on exercises designed to give the participant a more realistic sense of what it’s like to work as a peace officer.  Participation in the Academy requires a commitment of one full day and early evening (7:00 am – 7:00 pm). The Academy will occur on May 18, 2019, at the Holbrook Palmer Park Pavilion (150 Watkins Avenue). Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided for participants.
